Pop's Fossil

It is funny to me how much kids actually pick up on. My Dad died 5 years this past June. Kaitlyn was only 3 and I was pregnant with Kyle so he wasn't even born yet. They had never been out to his grave and truth be told I don't go out there as much I should. So the other day Kaitlyn asks me if we can go see Pop's fossil. I was really confused and she was trying to explain it to me. It took her a minute but I finally got. I have no idea where she got to call it a fossil nor do I know how she knew people even have gravestones. So I told her we would go see it one day this week. Then she says "and we need to take some flowers too". Again I do not know how she knew that you put flowers on the stone either. So we stopped at Kroger and bought some flowers and I showed them where the "fossil" is and they put the flowers down. Might be a little morbid but of course I took a picture.

That is so sweet. Kids seem to have the natural ability to show love. I think it's wonderful that she thought to do this.
